David McCarthy: Founder
With a successful career as a pharmacist and businessman spanning more than 30 years, David has always been closely involved in the health industry. But when his 10-year-old son was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1997, David was forced to re-evaluate his views on what traditional Western medicine could offer. Instead, he turned to the healing powers of food and, through introducing Jonathan to a Vegan diet, succeeded in prolonging his son's life far beyond the medical prognosis.
Following Jonathan's passing, David immersed himself in the study of macrobiotics, graduating from the Kushi Institute of Europe as a macrobiotic counsellor and teacher. He offers personalised health, lifestyle and dietary consultations in Haywards Heath, West Sussex and is now one of the most highly regarded advocates of the wide-ranging health benefits of a macrobiotic lifestyle in the UK.
Nicola McCarthy: Founder
A reflexologist, massage therapist, Reiki healer and mother of three, Nicola suffered with recurrent health problems for many years before switching to a macrobiotic diet. Nicola made a commitment to take her interest in Macrobiotics further, and following years of study, is now a skilled chef. Her enthusiasm for her subject is contagious and she has even been known to provide Macrobiotic food for the odd Hollywood celebrity. A graduate of the prestigious Kushi Institute of Europe, Nicola loves to teach macrobiotic cooking, offering practical advice and skills from beginner to advanced. Nicola is co-founder of Big Life Organics and Macrobiotic Shop, macrobiotic wholefood store and teaching centre in the UK, along with her husband David.
